    but in that time..For some reason.I`m having trouble with win98..
    my CD-rom wont detect the driver..D-is not asseceble..

    2-..my property assecebility section for the key board won`t let me click my sticky,toggle and filter keys..

    plus I cant no matter what..get my webcam...or lets just say my pc to detect USB controller...its there..but with this CD rom down I really cant do much..everything is failing abit at atime...

    no keyboard control access
    no USB controllers on my divice manager.

    No sense upgrading the old one as its probably just as cheap or cheaper to get all new parts and the new parts will work better together. I wouldn't worry about getting a pc thats upgradeable as by the time you want to upgrade it again its time for new technology. I suggest NOT getting a system with integrated video or sound. Check through some of the other posts on this board to see what people are recommending for a new system.

    I'd go for new PC.
    Maybe better warranty too but that's iffy.
    Go to the site mentioned above.
    They have 1 ghz machines for between 200 and 600 $ and plenty of ram.
    You may get someone else's problems with re-built.
    Out of time, got's ta go. Good Luck.

    Look under where to buy.
    It's an operating system page first but on it you will find where to buy.
    Check out Wal-mart PC's.

    I personally would run far and fast from walmart Lindows pc's.

    they are running on the via processor which have proven themselves to be pretty slow.


    spend the money and go either amd or intel.

    It REALLY depends on what you're going to do on your comp.
    Games? Business? E-mails? Design? Graphics? etc.etc, etc.
    For a great many Wal mart computers are just the thing.
    But for avid comp. users WELL , the sky's the limit, they say.
    Build your own.(i did)
    Use store bought.
    If yer a press the gas pedal and go kinda person then Walmart definitely has some great buys. :O)
    But if you really like to get under the hood so to speak then building one is just right.
    If you shop carefully and know what your looking for you CAN save a bundle.
    But enough said on this subject. ;o)
